Paper Abstract

The rapid development of technology and its integration into the spectrum of medical care are creating a pressing need for healthcare professionals to continuously update their knowledge and skills. In view of these needs the European Association of Visceral Surgery (AECV) which had been a platform for medical congresses in Luxembourg (1988, 1992, 1995, 1998) has developed TeleMEDiana a new broadband communication service introducing standards of excellence in Continuous Medical Education.TeleMEDiana broadcast a daily program with pedagogically enhanced video content in a number of therapeutic areas to MD's, professors and students in hospitals, universities and research centers. The educational programs are provided by leading European hospitals which have joined the TeleMEDiana Scientific Network TSN. The scientific integrity is certified by an international committee composed of recognized pioneers. Committed to deliver high resolution video streaming, TeleMEDiana has set up and successfully tested a new platform built on secure and cost-efficient satellite operator SES-ASTRA complemented by the Internet and can deliver programs to any workplace equipped with satellite dishes and high-quality set-top boxes. Telemediana offers herewith an optimal collaboration and dissemination platform to decisive players involved in Continuing Medical Education.
